A two-dimensional flow analysis of a radial inflow turbine distributor using full steady-state Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations is made. The numerical prediction of the total energy loss and the wicket gate torque is compared with experimental data. Also, a parametric study is carried out in order to evaluate the behavior of the numerical algorithm.
